Fabuliss Helps Mary, Part 2 – Fit & Color Recommendations

February 23, 2011

BEST FIT

Client Mary Wearing Different Jackets

A recent client, Mary, had no shortage of clothing and was looking for feedback on what fits and why.

The outfits above left and above right are the most successful with a few suggestions for improvement:

  • A shorter length for a 1st layer will help to lengthen the legs and hint at a waist.
  • More fitted translates to a taller, leaner look.

BEST COLORS

Color Stories That Work

You can have the best fit in the world but if the color does not work, you are sunk.

Fabuliss found the above color combinations to work beautifully for Mary.

  • The berry color mixed with grey matches her lip color and hair color.
  • Light grey compliments her hair color while the blue color of her jacket mimics her eyes.

In the wrong colors, Mary will look older than she is or people might see and only remember what she was wearing and not Mary.

MORE RECOMMENDATIONS

More outfits, evaluating color, texture & print

When it comes to color, print and texture together, there are a few tips and tricks to make it all work.

The above outfit examples show off a few dos and don’ts:

  • Do choose a print that is proportional to your height and width.
  • Do choose a sparkle or sheen in a dark color to feel glamorous without drawing too much attention to problem areas.
  • Do not feel the need to buy a color and wear it because it fits with a certain occasion, especially if it is not your best color.
  • Do mix and match colors.
  • Do not wear something if there is a high contrast horizontal stripe and you are petite and/or plus.

Stay tuned for the final installment of this 3-part series on Friday, February 25 2011.  We’ll look at mix and match ideas plus my picks for best of the best.

Fabuliss Helps Mary, Part 1 – What Works Best

February 21, 2011

Client Mary - What Works Best

{ click to enlarge }

Meet one of my new clients, Mary, who purchased a package through Victory Ventures to get aligned through mind, body and soul.

She is building a business and wants to put her best foot forward when it comes to outfits.

The featured outfits above work for Mary’s petite height for several reasons.

  • Color flow – a cohesive color story from top to bottom will add height while reducing volume.
  • Clothing length – these jacket lengths – especially with a top that ends right below the waist – give Mary a taller look than something that is too long or short.
  • Clothing fit – Mary’s shape benefits from a more structured shoulder, medium-sized lapels and some seaming through the torso.

The outfits on the left are professional and perfect for meeting with her team or clients, while the outfit on the right is more casual – perfect for a day at the office with no client meetings.

Stay tuned for more of this blog post series to see a series of outfits with Fabuliss advice regarding fit, color, pattern & texture and mix & match ideas.
